NYFW Fall 2013: Mathieu Mirano

The Mathieu Mirano presentation was held yesterday morning at The Box and even considering it was bright and early on a Monday the room was packed with fashionistas vying to get a peek at what this bright young designer had to show us this season.

Unlike last Fall, the collection seemed to be a toned down a notch. Sophisticated but a bit more restrained. Luxurious but quieter about it. The designer told Style.com that, “The collection is all about classic silhouettes executed in a new way.”

The color palatte was simple with a focus on blush nude and black with hits of black or gold shimmer in the fabric and gold toe shoes.

The strong message with this collection was geometry with very linear style lines and a bold grid pattern was prominent. Sometimes the grid was woven into the fabric while other times it was created through beading. Seaming details, strategic color blocking and piping in a rectangular formation only strengthened the statement for geometric shapes throughout the collection. Only one knit dress had  a slightly more organic feel as if there was a vein of gold running throughout the entire silhouette.

There was also a play on texture as plush fur was combined with delicate chiffon for a peekaboo effect. The play with texture and opacity continued with fur skirts paired with sheer knits, chiffon paired with crepes for a very sexy and striking look.

My personal favorite pieces were those sassy asymmetric dresses that were so thoughtfully executed.
